A common thesis states that CDs just don t sound as rich as old-fashioned vinyl does. There s something about an analog recording etched into the vinyl that cannot be replicated by a series of 0s and 1s. If you have an extra $23,000, however, a solution to the problem can be yours. The Kalista CD Transport employs French-designed aesthetics into a player that promises to deliver vinyl-quality sound from a CD. Sure, you could spend next to nothing on your next CD player, but then again, it still won t sound as good as vinyl. It also wouldn t need to be covered by Lloyd s of London.
